No tour in 2014

Postby jarkko » Sat Apr 12, 2014 11:51 pm

I still get a lot of emails asking about a tour in the fall of 2014.

Many are asking because they have been holding their registration to our Dublin Event, in the hope of getting a tour announcement.
This has been said many times here, but let's repeat it: there will be no tour in 2014.

I told Leonard today about the emails, and he asked me to quote him:
I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT THERE WILL BE NO TOURING IN 2014. THAT IS DEFINITE AND WRITTEN IN STONE.

And I bet you will still get people asking you if there is going to be a tour in 2014, Jarkko :lol:
I guess it all started for me sometime around Christmas 1967 and now, goodness me, it's.........2018 and over fifty years later.
No one ever listens to me. I might as well be a Leonard Cohen record.

Leonard deserves a rest. He can do his new album and another book of poetry now.

So, where does the rest you mentioned come in, clawless, with those two heavy-duty assignments ;-) ?

Perhaps more a question of refocusing his creative energy, and maybe it's some of us who will be experiencing the ' rest ' - less travelling to concerts , less expenditure on tickets, travel and hotels!

Saving up if we need to for 2015 and beyond????!!

Love the comment from 'Dr.Heck of a Guy'
DrHGuy Note: This writing in stone thing does go a long way toward explaining why it takes Leonard so long to write his songs.
Leonard's work resonates

You're right, they will not stop...

A new CD... and then touring in the same year...
We all know, that Leonard Cohen always wants to "deliver" a perfect Album.
Remember back: "Old Ideas" needs moore time then they have told before. The releae-date was Change for two times...

So if there will come a new Album, then we have something great, that's for sure!
And then we can hope for the next year.
So wait and see...
I'm sure, it wasn't the last announcement in this "case", that's for sure

The poor bloke has probably had to take the year off to catch up with all the paperwork!

Disappointing, but it's a relief to have something definite for the rest of the year. Whether or not they tour again in '15 or beyond-- Thanks for all the tours, Leonard! It's been wonderful the last several years. :D
